A brief summary from Sylvia Bambola:
Two women engineers struggle to develop the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft amid ever intensifying global terrorism and muddled personal lives. Trisha Callahan has an abiding faith in God, and “those roots of middy blouses and pleated skirts, prayer books and incense-filled churches went deep.” This faith is tested when she finds herself in love with a married man. Audra Shields sees herself as a modern Lady Chatterley, “liberated but not forsaking breeding, intellect, or femininity.” When she becomes involved with a dangerous stranger, she begins to question her lifestyle.
Both women try sorting out their personal problems while racing the clock to finish a project fraught with sabotage and murder. And who’s behind it all? When the Department of Homeland Security and the Mossad finally figure it out, the answer surprises everyone.
In a perhaps not so unfeasible future, terrorism holds a tight grasp over the United States of America. Daily, attacks happen across the nation and the government is powerless to stop the crimes being committed. In the midst of the chaos, a private company is on a mission to develop the first nuclear powered aircraft – a feat that has the world watching…including the terrorists, who want to possess the technology for themselves. Can the technology stay out of the terrorists hands, or, like the new America, will it be overtaken and used for treachery?
